      I re-read the court proceedings last night. Saunderson wasn't in Ireland in 1888; he already appears to have been staying at the institution in Hampton Wick, which is referred to as "Eastcote." There is also at least one reference to him sometimes lodging outside the institution.

      The link above doesn't give the whole story. Yes, he was arrested in Belfast, but he escaped police custody and was arrested again in Killeshandra, west of Cavan. The UK Census shows that he was still 'safely caged' in Broadmoor in 1901 and 1911.

          Hi Joshua.

          Old Bailey On-Line has an entry on Saunderson, but since he was found unfit to plead it is minimal, so I had to rely on the inquest reports and pre-trial hearings from newspaper sources. I started a new thread under "suspects," with a long article from Reynolds that includes a sketch. More tomorrow. Cheers.

            Do we know who actually lived in that building between 1891 and 1899?

              I got "This page does not exist" message when trying that link, Herlock.

              "Dr. S.S.A. Hasbro, surgeon and restauranteur" is a humorous sobriquet. I'll be surprised if the plaque is still there now.
